CROSS J-Jfiotogi-aphy WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN City Council Calls For Bylaw To Increase Density On Drive De Holland Twin Otter Ready For Local Service Time Gets Turbo-Prop Plane A bylaw is to be prepared that will allow higher density standards on Mayor Magrath Drive. John Hammond, city solici- tor, was instructed by council last night to draw up the by- law in accordance with rec- ommendations of Erwin Adder- ley, director of planning. Council passed a resolution June 2 stating its intention to have the bylaw prepared as soon as a report from Mr. Adderley was ready. Mr. Adderley at that time, and again in his latest report, recommended against such ac- tion. His recommendation al- lows the development of a pro- posed high-rise motel on the Drive, but also points out that every site along the drive cur- rently zoned Ci! commercial could double its present capac- ity. The specific change to be made in tire bylaw will be- to change the floor area ratio from 0.50 to 1.00. Regulations governing maximum coverage will be deleted. The effect will be to allow twice as much floor area on any parcel of land in a C8 zone. Aug. 10 is the earliest possible date a public hearing could bo held on the bylaw. Low-Cost Housing Plans Discussed low-cost housing plan for per front foot was tabled A recommendation from the housing committee that the city sell serviced lots under the new by council last night until more in- formation could be obtained by the city solicitor on the legal aspects of the situation. Mayor Andy Anderson said the reduced price, which would bring the price of an average ;lot down by about would be the city's only contribution ownership housing Mortgage funds are being made available by the federal government. The province is i to the scheme. adding on a two per cent sub- sidy on the .federal interest rate of per cent. This will drop the interest rnte to per cent. Alderman Vaughan Hembroff questioned John Hammond, the city solicitor, on the city's legal position when it came to ac- tually enforcing the conditions attached to such sales that pre- vent possible land speculation. Aid. C. W. Chichester, hous- ing committee chairman, said the plan was very similar to the one used for veteran's hous- ing after the Second World War and no problems should be en- countered. Strict control over sale and re-sale of the lots would be maintained by Cen- tal Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration. According to the recom- mendation, lots purchased but not used would revert to regu- lar prices and could not be sold to other developers. AH devel- opments would have to be ap- proved by CMHC. Final bridge's approval for Leth- participation in the federal plan seems assured. Mayor Andy Anderson told council Fred Colborne, provin- cial municipal affairs minister, was in the process of indicating his approval to Robert Andras, Time Airways Ltd.'s 19-pas- senger De Havilland Twin Otter turbo-prop aircraft arrived in Lethbridge this morning for Time's scheduled take-over ot the Air Canada Lethbridge-Cal- gary nm.
